Al Franken on Funding the IRS | Heather McGhee’s “The Sum of Us”
Republicans want you to believe that increased funding and a greater workforce for the IRS means you'll have tax collectors breaking down your door and taking your money at gunpoint. In the latest installment of Long Story Short, Al Franken takes a look at what that new IRS money is really going towards, including updated technology and more people to handle the complex high-income audits. Plus, New York Times bestselling author, Heather McGhee, discusses some of the history that created the racial wealth divide, why she decided to adapt her book "The Sum of Us" for young readers, and the story behind the book's cover art.
